It is staggering that close to 80% of change initiatives end up failing, or falling far short of delivering on their intended benefits. For the most part, this is not because they are not valuable initiatives, but rather it is mostly attributed to flawed execution, failure to understand what the change is about, failure to realize the extent of the organizational change and a disconnect between the strategic aspect of the change and the tactical elements that include the project itself, the team involved and the measurement of success.
This program connects change management and project management in a unique manner at 4 different levels:
This program helps integrate projects, their context, and the reasons why are they taking place. While it does not cover business analysis elements related to building a business case, it covers the strategic context and the vision that are behind the need for the project. Further, the program helps participants build a solid thread of reasoning, rationale, and continuity and it enables project managers and business leaders to make informed decisions.
After taking this program, participants will be positioned to effectively lead projects in a way that meets the actual needs for which the project was undertaken and it helps project managers better understand change management concepts and allows business leaders to understand the applicable project management and change management touchpoints.
In turn, this will lead to a greater success with the alignment between the organizational change initiative and the tactical elements that ensue in the form of project management, with focus on both “traditional” project considerations, as well as organizational change in the context of agile.
By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
